  1. NASCAR had said they wanted to enforce social distancing and the wearing of face masks, until Bubba Wallace had a "noose" in the garage.  NASCAR then had a Bubba love fest and social distancing and masks went out the window.  At the end of the race Bubba ran up to the fans, no mask on him or the fans, and started slapping hands.  Today it was announced that Jimmie Johnson and his wife have tested positive for COVID-19.  Johnson won't be racing this weekend and will probably start to quarantine.  So I wonder how many more drivers and crews are going to start testing positive.

     

    Another reason that pro sports have turned into a shame.

  2. Had one of those pins (chrome) stick to the side of the screwdriver that was near it, thought I lost it, that little bugger tried to be sneaky and was hiding.

    SLIM,

    if you have a magnetic 'bowl' close to your table, look on the bottom of it.

     

    And, I'll betcha a DQ treat that you'll find it at the last place you look..... ;)

     

    P.S. - check your pants pockets or cuffs on your pants.   And sometimes, stuff falls and gets stuck on the top of your shoes.

    It's always the last place you look because you don't need to keep looking :D :P :FlagAm:

  4. @Griff  thanks for the advice.  Yesterday I took my new C&B's to the range to practice not only shooting but loading.  I'm using a wonder wad over the powder, from what I've read, and now saw for myself, the wad pushes any powder from the chamber wall which is supposed to help preventing chain fire.  The 6th chamber loading I knew I'd do if a stage called for a reload, I never really thought about just keeping one loaded "just in case".

    The gunsmith who made this derringer is a good friend of mine in Austria.

    He let us have the piece on occasion of a Centaure exhibition a few years back

    This gentleman also made most of my Centaure and Colt conversions I am using in CAS, just completed a Paterson conversion project in .41 cal. and last year this 1855 Root Dragoon.

    Wish I had a friend like that ;)


  6. To the founders and board members I say thank you for all the dedication and hard work for a great many years.  To the future board members, remember the history and pay homage.  Keep an eye on the future and lead the way of the greatest group of pards.

    This Sabata derringer is a project gun of an Austrian master gunsmith.

    He made this one on order for a collector.

    Kalibers are .38 x 4 and in the butt .22 x 3

    And yes, the grip can fire like in the movie.

    Where were you lucky enough to find such a unique pistol?


  8. I'm not sure if it's still a requirement but in the early 2000's in order to ship HAZMAT the person doing the paperwork had to be a HAZMAT certifier.  The military taught the course (I'm sure there were civilian courses also), the course taught shipping, packaging, labeling, and regulations.  Upon graduation you were given a certificate which had to be renewed by attending a refresher course every 3 years, the certification was applicable in the private sector.  The person with the certificate signed all the required paperwork and was accountable for any discrepancies.

     

    Interesting note - when a conveyance was being loaded with HAZMAT the certifier had to be present to ensure that the material maintained all requirements for securing and separation.

    I only spent a couple of hours in Tombstone.   Enough to take some pics, visit a coupla shops and have lunch.   I wanna go back and be able to spend at least a day or three there exploring the place.

     

    I was there for 2 days last December and loved it.  I want to go back in a little warmer weather and spend some more time to get out into the desert and go to Bisby.

    How do you drop a pistol and no one see it!  Ouch!

     

    I was at the LT and was the last shooter.  After the guns were checked there was no one there.  I went to holster a pistol and it slipped out of my hand.  This was before I had surgery to repair nerve damage, at the time I had very little feeling in my hand so I had to actually watch what I was doing, that time I didn't watch.

    Got my first MDQ today at my first cowboy match of the year. I shoot duelist and use a double strong "buscedaro" drop rig. When I went to draw my left pistol by grabbing it around the frame so I can transition it to my right hand easier, somehow I managed to throw it right on the ground. 3rd stage. Spent the rest of the day doing posse chores. 

     

     

     

    I gave myself a MDQ last year, dropped a loaded pistol, no one saw it, but I called the penalty thought it was the right thing to do.  And glad to hear that you stuck around and helped out and didn't go right home, that's the cowboy way.

    Now that primers and powder are lined up, I can relax and focus on bullets, wads, overshot cards, and a few more tools.

     

    For wads, nitro cards, overshot cards try BPI there are others as you've probably know.  For sealing I use Duco cement, dries quick and leaves no residue.  I seal my hulls because of the high humidity here.

    I have a mountain of applications here :rolleyes: but still looking.

     

    Don't miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity.

    If I lived further east I might've put in an application.  If you're still riding solo and coming this way in the future I'd be happy to let you ride shotgun with me.

    Even have an extra room at the homestead if you need, no charge.

    Send a PM to Tequilla Shooter.  He's a great pard and he lives down in that area.  I'm sure he'll be glad to help you out. 

     

    It's good to have an AF guy among us!

     

    I'd be glad to help...even an AF guy ;)

    Therein lies your problem; birdhead's are a little awkward even when hands are dry.

     

    I just bought them used and this was my first match with them.  I really liked the lowered hammers, but it may be better to use them when the weather cools off.  @Tyrel Cody I'm planning to try my new to me C&B guns at the next match :D
